The reason why the original E4 is more than the others is that it came out before a lot of the tooling for the plastic parts was competed so they macacined many of the parts from solid aluminum. In fact if you add up all of the just all the aluminum parts it would total about $400.00. The only dowside to the car is that it was designed before LiPos became so popular. It takes about 10 minutes of Dremmel work to make the LiPos fit. If you are the kind of person that spends a lot on billet parts then the E4 is a real bargain.
